It was a career day for former Foster star Ceedee Lamb, as he had a huge performance for No. 5 Oklahoma against No. 11 Texas Saturday afternoon in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
Lamb set a career high with 10 receptions for 171 yards and caught three touchdown passes for the second time this season in the Sooners’ 34-27 win over the Longhorns. His touchdowns covered a yard on a fourth-down play in the first quarter, a 51-yard catch in the third quarter where he beat five defenders, and a 27-yard grab in the fourth quarter where he broke two tackles on his way to the end zone.
The junior, who was named Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week on Sunday and the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, made 10 of OU’s 16 receptions on the day and tied Dede Westbrook for the most catches by an OU receiver against the Longhorns.
He also became the third Sooner to catch three touchdown passes vs. UT, joining Westbrook and Manuel Johnson. Saturday marked the eighth straight game Lamb has recorded at least one touchdown reception, and he has seven TD catches over the last three outings.
Lamb and the Sooners will face West Virginia this Saturday.
